Tonight is a pivotal night for our soap gal, Kelly Monaco (Sam) of General Hospital and her dance partner, Val Chermkovskiy! After three nights of ballroom dancing competition, including two group dances and two individual routines, Kelly and Val were at the bottom of the leaderboard amongst the eight remaining couples vying for the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars Mirror Ball Trophy!
With a score of 78.5 out of a possible 90 points, Kelly and Val fell off the pace, even though they seemed to redeem themselves with a tango last night where Monaco looked beautiful and channeled her inner Scarlet O-Hara in a routine that had to be danced to a Country-inspired tune and theme.
Most noticeably of the night for Kelly and Val, was the kiss that has been talked about when Val planted it on Kelly just as they completed their dance. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said, “Nice comeback!” of the routine. However, the question on everyone’s mind is, did Kelly and Val get enough viewers votes at home to stay alive in the competition?
One other wrinkle was that “Sandy” which was engulfing the east coast, and shutting down power in homes all across the eastern states and seaboard, made ABC expand the time for viewers to vote which had a cut off this morning as of 11AM EST. Will that have helped or hurt Kelly and Val? Did soap fans and GH fans call in and support the couple?
Let us know if you think Kelly and Val will be saved? Or God forbid, the sexy duo will be sent home tonight on the Results Show?
